61. Stefan O’Connor (On loan at Maastricht, until May 2017)


Imposing centre-back Stefan was a mainstay for Arsenal’s U21 side last season, whilst the youngster also made his first forays into the senior set-up.



The youngster made his first-team debut as a substitute away to Galatasaray in the Champions League, whilst he also trained with Arsene Wenger’s squad on several occasions.

Stefan spent the majority of the season representing Arsenal at U21 level and he was a near ever-present for the second-string, having previously made his debut at that level whilst he was a first-year scholar. He also featured prominently in the UEFA Youth League.

A defender who is adept at reading the game and is strong in the air, Stefan’s distribution still requires some work, but, having signed his first professional contract last season, he will be hopeful of developing further this season.

  1. JB, kindly up date the players profile by including their heights measurements. When you describe someone as impossing, how can we know is height?

    1. well done O’CONNOR to playing champions league at 17 and making your debut,it is amazing how many 17 year old centre halves have played in the champions league, i can’t think of any. O’connor i salute you and ARSENE WENGER for raIsing the bar

  2. Great season over 50 appearances 2nd trophy win in Durban cup, roll on first team.
    O’Connor has been playing under21 since he was 16 years old something must right in his passing George or he would not have played for England and be one of the boys to play the highest amount of games in the academy this season.
